Prayer requests

It's been a while since we paused to pray together. I hope that this new year will bring health and peace to all who read and study here.

Some of us have left requests here to pray for our health, and for the health of our loved ones. Some have asked for comfort as trying times are upon us.

Please be assured that your requests are noted, and that we pray alongside you, and bear your burdens. Please know, too, that Jesus already knows of these concerns, and that He is delighted when we turn to Him for His help and strength.

It is He Who can heal, Who can move, and Who can comfort.  Seek His face, and wait quietly for a word from Him.
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. (Mark 11:24)
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 15 And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him. (I John 5:14-15)

If you would like to share a prayer request, or to share a praise for answered prayer, please leave a comment below.

Let's pray.

I've always wondered about that verse in Mark!! It seems so straightforward and yet we don't always receive answers, or at least not the ones we want!
